MG Electric SUV Spied
This post comes from powerdrift on Instagram. It captures the spy shots of the electric SUV. The caption of this post reads that the global debut of this SUV will take place this year. Essentially, it shares the underpinnings with the Baojun Yep EV which is on sale in China. If these reports are anything to go by, we could experience this electric SUV in the flesh in India sometime by 2025. At present, MG offers two electric cars in the Indian market – ZS EV and Comet. While the former is a mid-size SUV, the latter is a compact and affordable 4-seater hatchback.

Going by these images, the SUV boasts an upright and boxy silhouette which becomes more prominent toward the rear. It gets square windows and a rear profile, almost reminiscent of the Land Rover Defender. Even though this model is under heavy camouflage, we are able to deduce the size and styling quite well. At the rear, there is a roof-mounted spoiler and compact taillamps on the extreme edges of the bootlid. The alloy wheels are elegant and the rear bumper looks rugged. The wheel arches are quite chunky and angular. One is barely able to witness the front section but it looks like it will get a broad grille area.

However, with the size of our market, there is room for a lot more. In fact, we are yet to see a comprehensive EV lineup from most carmakers in our market. With each passing year, we witness new models on sale. Let us see what 2024 throws at us in this regard.
